republican fight over funding and the affordable care act continues in texas, with the state's junior senator, ted cruz, leading the charge against the expansion of health care coverage in this country. >> i am publicly committed along with a number of other senators that under no circumstances will i vote for any continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. now, why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever give up his principles, so republicans have to give up theirs? if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> the senior senator from texas disagrees with his junior senator. >> even if you shut down the government, mandatory spending would continue to pay for the implementation of obama care. we're all on the same side when it comes to the objective. there is some difference of opinion as to the viability, or the likelihood of success of this particular tactic. >> a new survey from usa today shows t
why in a minute he's not just another whackadoo. live to dallas, texas, where ted cruz is about to speak in just a moment. see the big defund obama care banner which lets you know what the event is going to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august
better than we were and have been for a few yearses now. and yet, today, in texas, another round has just begun of unpaving the roads. seriously. in four counties in south texas, and two counties in west texas, today is the day state started converting paved roads into gravel roads. texas state department of trn transportation made the announcement last month. "since paving roads is too expensive and there's not enough funding to repave them all, our only other option to make them safer is to turn them into gravel roads. t "it's not like they're saying gravel roads are better, figured out grounds on which gravel roads are pleasing or sound, or get the most out of your performance car. those are not artisanal roads. roads in texas are being unpaved because pavement is something we cannot afford there anymore. in this part of texas it's happening because of the "sharp increase in heavy traffic due to the oil boom." the damage related to energy development has become so extensive that state and local authorities lack the funding to make all the repairs. the problem increased heavy equipment
with texas representative waukeen castro and the reverend al sharpton. >>> as the outrage over russia's anti-gay laws continue to grow, we're beginning to get a disturbing picture of what life is like there for its lgbt citizens. my guest tonight is russian, openly gay and about to flee the country. >>> plus, stop and frisk and edward snowden, what do they have in quhcommon? a whole lot more than you might think. >>> we begin on the front lines of voter suppression, with multiple developments across the country, not the least of which is the attorney general of the united states eric holder suing the state of texas, two states suing the federal government back, and a prominent republican lambasting the republican fwo b governor of north carolina over that state's brand new voting requirements. today the justice department announced plans to file a new lawsuit against the state of texas over its voteer i.d. law and intervene as a party in another case involving texas redistricting. attorney general holder said "he will not allow the prime court's recent decision to be interpreted as open sea
was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an
, texas, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, chris. the military trial for major nadal hasan is under way here at ft. hood a mile or so from the medical readiness unit where three years ago he shot and killed 13 soldiers and wounded 32 others. now in previous hearings, major hasan has tried to lead guilty to the charges but because this case involves the death penalty, it has to go through this article 32 court-martial hearing. hasan has elected to represent himself which now presents the bizarre opportunity for major hasan to actually cross-examine some of the people he allegedly shot. one of those is sergeant alonzo lu lunsford who told us he is looking forward to talk to the man who tried to kill him. here is what he had to say. >> i will not show fear in the face of an enemy because the man who shot me, major hasan is the man who going to be cross-examining me and that is a huge challenge. >> reporter: sergeant lundford is the lead witness in this case after opening statements begin this afternoon. opening statements are underway right now. lunsford will testi

lee dimaggio may be heading to texas or canada. that alert did not specify why. but obviously the search has crossed state lines at this point. >> so, obviously, border security is pretty critical, but what are they doing about this notion that he could be headed to texas. i mean, where are the texas authorities on this? >> reporter: well, a texas affiliate, at this time, we are still waiting for an update from sheriff's officials. they gave us their last press conference around 9:00 last night. we're still waiting to hear back, but, obviously, communication must be going on to make sure that this search is thorough, to hopefully find these children. because it's been more than 30 hours now. this started sunday evening. and if they left before that, they can be far beyond california, possibly not even in the u.s. at this time. but we are still waiting for those updates. >> okay. i want to put up those two pictures again, candice, if i can. and i'm just going to repeat what the issue is here. we've got hanna and ethan. their mother was murdered and another child, who is yet to
'm glad the justice department is moving forward in texas. i want them to do that in north carolina and any other state that has put in place these laws that are really going to be damaging to people's right to vote. >> and that's the real point. people have been voting for years with their i.d. there's been no widespread fraud. yet you come in with a new program. it is a solution looking for a problem rather than a problem in need of a solution. and one of the people who just filed a lawsuit other in north carolina's voting suppression law is 92-year-old rosenel eaton who has compared to the literacy test she faced during the crowe era. listen to this 92-year-old. >> here i am at 92 years old doing the same battling. we need more, not less, access to the ballot. at the age of 92, i am fed up and fired up. >> 92 years old saying it's the same thing she's fed up and fired up standing there with reverend william barber. people are calling them out on this. >> that's right. and you know what? i am so proud to be a north carolinian. she really is fed up. >> i think that -- and the thing
'm a u.s. citizen by birth. >> he couldn't be more right. welcome back to "hardball." that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl he is a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz who was born in canada to an american mother has dual citizenship is by the accident of being born up there. following that report he released a statement. he said now the dallas morning news says i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that to be true, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada but i'm an american by birth and a u.s. senator, i believe i should only be an american. well said. i couldn't agree with him more. odd to say in their about a guy i probably disagree with on many points but he could not be more right. the irony here of course, is that cruz's birth mirrors the phony scenario concocted by the birthers including donald trump to falsely have been arguing even to this day that president obama was born overseas mostly in kenya
. and the department of justice today announced they will sue the state of texas in order to stop texas' voter i.d. law. the justice department says it plans its challenge under the part of the voting rights act that was not gutted by the supreme court earlier this summer. in a statement, attorney general eric holder said this represents the department's latest action to protect voting rights but will not be our last. the federal government is going to wade into texas to stop what texas is going on voter suppression. if the administration says texas won't be the last place that happens, what will be the next place that happens? north carolina's new move s fwes voting rights are called the most radical state-wide changes since the voting rights act was passed in 1965. does north carolina need federal intervention in order to protect its citizens' right to vote in joining us now, congressman g.k. butterfield, represents elizabeth city where we are tonight. he's a former voting rights attorney, himself. former north carolina supreme court justice. congressman butterfield, thank you for being here tonight.

no longer canadian. or is he? the republican senator from texas making certain that everyone knows he's an american citizen. he's actually so determined to convince the skeptics that he actually released his birth certificate and also said he would renounce his canadian citizenship if needed. now we can rest easy and we appreciate him for clearing that up for us. the editor of the guardian speaking out after the uk offices of the paper were ransacked by officials from britain's communications headquarters. that's basically the country's equivalent to the nsa. he described how officials destroyed hard drives in the basement of the guardian's office which contained information related to edward snowden's nsa leaks. he received warnings to stop reporting on the government surveillance programs as far as two months ago with officials telling him, quote, you've had your fun, now we want the stuff back, end quote. meanwhile guardian journalist glenn greenwald responding to his partner's nine hour detainment at heathrow airport vowing to get more aggressive in his focus on british surveillan

into a wifi network and monitors a baby monitor. it happened this week in texas. are you freaked-out? not only that but your home could be hacked into if you're not careful. >> imagine your 2-year-old daughter sleeping and and outsider watching her through the baby monitor. that's what happened to a family in texas this weekend. they discovered the problem when they heard a man yelling at their toddler reading her name off their bedroom wall. >> he said wake-up alison you little [ bleep ] >> the gilberts said their device was hacked. >> it felt like someone broke into our house. >> someone did. as automation becomes more popular there are more and more ways to hack your house and many more devices vulnerable. >> i can tell the light please unlock the door. >> that's a hacker literally unlocking your door. the smart device is connected to a device that allows you to control the appliances from your home. daniel crowley found a flaw in that device. >> i run code and compromise it, set up a back door or i can control any device hooked up to it. >> in a world full of these teaches of devices that

'll use the other half. more than they used to. starting with texas and continuing presumably with the other states that had had laws blocked by the voting rights act before the supreme court ruling but now feel like they can go ahead. so texas first. maybe alabama. maybe mississippi. maybe north carolina after today. sometimes you use the bully pulpit. sometimes you have the authority to weigh in and stop something directly. sometimes when you lose that authority, as justice department did during the, with the voting rights act case. sometimes when you lose that authority, you instead decide you're going to sue. what is the range of options available to you? and how do you use it? how do you still try to make progress when some avenues toward the progress you want to make are blocked? on the issue of drugs and criminal justice, the obama administration made it a priority to try to reduce the huge disparity in sentencing for crack cocaine versus powder cocaine. i mean, if cocaine is the problem, why be so much more lenient for one variety of cocaine and so much more strict for

, the justice department filed a lawsuit against the state of texas to block that state's voter i.d. law that went in effect a mere hours after the supreme court's decision essentially gutted the -- in a statement here, eric holder said -- we will not allow the supreme court's recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. in fact, within hours of that comment, senator john cornyn of texas, who is one partisan paul, issued his own statement, saying -- facts mean little to a justice department bent on inserting itself into the sovereign affairs of texas and a lame-duck administration in trying to turn our state blue. excuse me, senator. lame duck? we are six months into a four-year presidential term, but that's the way they want us to think, isn't it, clarence? they've been really good at it. make people think that obama is on his way out the door. >> sure. the irony of this is, as was mentioned earlier, while the republicans have put so much attention on voter i.d. they had a problem getting white and blue collar male voters to
